Netflix grabs Dallas for its viewers

Netflix has signed a deal with two large US studios to secure access to a raft of live action and animated shows for 2013.

netflix-logoAs we crack on with the new year, video subscription services are stocking up on new shows and films for the year. Hot on the heels of LoveFilm signing up with NBCUniversal, rival site Netflix has announced a multiyear partnership with the Warner Bros. Television Group and Turner Broadcasting.

Fans of late-night cartoons for grown ups should be over the moon at this news. The deal bags Netflix the complete runs of classic Cartoon Network and Adult Swim shows like Robot Chicken and Aqua Team Hunger Force. As if you don’t have them on DVD already.

Soap watchers will be in for a treat too. Netflix will shortly be offering both seasons of the newly-revamped Dallas. This will be a Netflix exclusive for at least two years. We on the other hand want to know when they plan to show the original series of Dallas, Who Shot JR/It Was All A Dream nuttiness and all.

Last year Netflix also inked a deal with Disney that made it the sole online distributor of Disney movies in the US.
